Code: JP5058 ISMN: 979-0-3019-0323-0
Robert Kahn (1865-1951) wrote no orchestral music, concentrating instead on choral and chamber music. His compositional style strongly favored Romantic harmonies with the texture and scoring influenced by Brahms. His Serenade, op. 23 was first published in 1923. Although originally scored for oboe, horn and piano, alternate possibilities were also provided including clarinet or violin in place of the oboe and viola or cello in place of the horn. This edition (JP5058) includes parts for oboe (violin), clarinet (in place of oboe), horn and piano. See JP5109 for viola in place of the horn. The work is one movement with several different sections with a total duration of 10.5 minutes. Its beautiful melodies will be a great addition to your program.
Note: The score samples displayed are for oboe-horn-piano, but both a transposed clarinet part and an oboe part are included in the publication.
